Lions Club to hold clay shoot
The North Shreveport Lions Club will present its Louisiana Lions Shoot for Sight, a sporting clay shoot fund-raiser, on Saturday, March 8, at the Shreveport Gun Club, located at 4435 Meriwether Road near the Shreveport Regional Airport.
Check-in will be at 7:30 a.m., with the event beginning at 8 a.m.
There will be 10 challenging shooting stations, and lunch will be provided.
The cost is $100 per person or $500 for a five-member team.
Participants are asked to bring their own guns and ammo for at least 100 shots plus extra for shooting games, mulligans and wabble, along with eye and ear protection.
Individuals and businesses that would like to be sponsors of this event can do so for $100, which will include your name or your company name displayed on a sign at a sponsored shooting station.
Lions Club International is the largest service organization in the world, with more than 1.35 million members in 46,000 clubs in over 260 countries.
In 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to “become knights to the blind in a crusade against darkness,” and since then, Lions have been involved in projects to help the blind.
The Louisiana Lions Eye Bank is one of those projects. Begun in 1974 as a project of several Lions Clubs in Northwest Louisiana, it provides a way for those who want to donate their eye tissue to those who need the gift of sight by harvesting, storing and distributing cornea tissue. It is the only Lions-affiliated eye bank in Louisiana.
All other donations will be accepted at the clay shoot on March 8.
